Rated 1 out of 5 by ChickenGram Not suitable dress fabric, much to thin & poor quality.
Purchased on sale, but returned it anyhow....much too light weight for dress making. Outer fabric is no heavier than the voile lining. Also, not a great design unless the wearer intends to stand in it all day....unsuitable for sitting and freedom of movement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kelly7 returning it
I wanted to like this dress, the pattern and material are nice. I am a pear shape and the fit was all wrong. It's lined and felt very uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LB412 Love this dress
So cute and flattering. I loved that it was lined. I can wear it now with a jacket but it will be great in the summer too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BellaC Add a belt to make it really shine!
This dress has a very earthy look to it, the black dye seems to seep into the off-white parts as light grey but it doesn't look bad, just raw and natural looking. The thin cotton lining underneath is yellowish off-white which I like better than bleached bright white.
Both the linen and the cotton lining is soft and flowy, very comfortable to wear. Although it looks loose, don't size down because the lining makes it smaller. I'm 5'5", 34-27-37, the size 4 I bought fits perfectly and the hem hits at the knee.
This dress has very little definition (the model in the picture must have it pinned in the back). It looks casual and shapeless on it's own but adding a belt makes it look much nicer! I wore it with a thin black crystal belt and it looked dressed up instantly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MickiSue SO CUTE!
I am in the process of losing weight--18 lbs so far, YAY me--and needed some clothes to wear to a conference that will be coming up in April. So, instead of my usual 12, I ordered an 8. Now, that was fun in itself!
It was so much fun to get this cute and flattering dress in the middle of cold January, knowing that I will be able to wear it, with a sweater, in April, and all by itself in the summer.
It fits, it's a good length for my age, and the pattern makes it forgiving of the shape changes we all experience as we get older. Love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marigold may not fit for those w/pear shape; but nice pattern
I have more of a pear, not apple, shape, and this did not fit me well, so I returned it. But as many have noted, it is a very nice pattern that looks sophisticated enough for a social event. I just needed more shaping at the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yogaNurse Beautiful print, great fit
I love this dress. I'm 5'5" 145 lbs. I ordered a size small - the fit is perfect! I plan to wear it year round since I live in Florida.
